Bin Laden died: where shall the counter-terrorist war go?

End of Bin Laden≠ End of counter-terrorist war

The Telegraph- Obama Bin Laden

The Telegraph mistake- Obama Bin Laden

“Good evening.  Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda…” Mr. Barrack Obama announced this in his speech to the nation on the 1st of May. Followed up were a storm of the coverage of Bin Laden’s death by the media.

To the world now, the Bin Laden era is over. Soon after the president’s speech, Al Qaeda  member announced that if their leader was killed they would take massive revenge towards US force in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The US government has warned its citizens of the likely terrorist attack. The UK Home Office has put the current threat level to ‘severe’. The British embassies

The Telegraph- Osama Bin Laden

The Telegraph correct- Osama Bin Laden

worldwide are ordered to review security. The situation seems to be tight and both countries are prepared to handle any likely threat.

There are no terrorist groups presenting any formal statement at this moment, however, the existing terrorist cells both domestic and foreign, in countries such as Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan are a liability that cannot be ignored. Although the death of Bin Laden is a victory of US/UK, it is not a good sign for the terrorist cells– or for them, it’s a green light.

Both Mr. Obama and Mr. Cameron are aware of there are many other terrorist leaders other than Bin Laden.

” they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body”

Nearly ten years ago, when former US President Bush declared war on terrorism, he said he would do whatever he could to protect his people. So did Mr. Obama as he said: “After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.”

There are sources confirm that the Navy Seal shot Bin Laden  in stead of taking him into custody in order to keeping off any risk of his fleeing.

To the US it is a easy way to deal with the situation. Or put into other words: this saves a lot of trouble of processing the law and making him confessing. It seems weird to the reporter that the action is justified. It is more like a committed, well-planned murder by the most powerful nation on the earth.

No more excuses?

The war itself is a fortune for politicians to fulfill their ambitious goals. The ‘oil war’ towards Iraq is also in the name of counter-terrorist war. It seems if there are no good excuses to use to justify a war, then put Terrorism in the name will finish the job.

But the most wanted terrorist’s death makes it impossible to be the scapegoat used before.   The truth is, if one country sees a need it will do whatever it can to seize the need, and, there will always be more excuses than needed.

Heather Iqbal said: “Close to 3000 people died in the 9/11 attacks, which were brutal and cannot be justified.  Neither can the 7/7 attacks in London.  But the American and British government both, with their half-a-century policy over the Eastern world, are ready to harm their own citizens by convincing them they are purely fighting those who terrorise them. “
